Do you ever feel, “Is this all there is to my life; work, home, maybe carpool, rinse, repeat?” Do you feel like you are living your best life? On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being amazing, how would you rate your life satisfaction right now? How might it feel to be more productive rather than just “crazy busy and overwhelmed?” Thoreau said’ “It’s not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?” Learn ways to increase your productivity no matter your circumstances and make peace with your “to do” list.
